Here goes!

Posted by plusle in Plusle's Egg Donor Journey, 29 January 2015 · 114 views

I haven't been around the Infertility world for very long, only a few weeks while I have been reading up on egg donation. One concern that recipient sometimes have is if donors might "claim" their baby in any way after the donation process, legally or emotionally. I think that's a legitimate worry, of course.

People without children are not delusional about having them

Posted by MagentaSky in MagentaSky's Blog, 27 January 2015 · 192 views

I want to clear up a few wrongful assumptions about infertile couples, in the hopes that this will resonate with others in my same situation, and that it will help outsiders be more aware and sensitive. 
 
I noticed there exists a strange assumption that people who can't have children, or are experiencing infertility, are somehow delusional abou...

Day of FET and warm massage table

Posted by Hope baby in Hope baby's Blog, 23 January 2015 · 164 views

Question: Did a massage about 1 hr after my FET. I realized later that the massage table is heated maybe 15- 30 mins into the session. I then asked the massage therapist to turned the massage table warmer off. Does anybody know if heated table warmers are contraindicated right after FET , specifically right after? I know hot tubs, saunas and Jacuzzis are...

I thought things would be different by now

Posted by Ljo in Ljo's Blog, 12 January 2015 · 271 views

It's been two years trying to conceive. A year and a half with help and nothing. I just thought things would be different by now with some progress and I feel like I'm nowhere.
 
We've been told that IVF looks like our next best option and so we've been trying to wrap our heads around that as well as looking into finances and how to afford it.

My NT scan is next week and I am more than a little anxious.
